I can't find a picture of this bacteria that isn't a magnification of the actual cell structure. I think I might have had the same in my tank before I tore it down in December, but would like to see a picture to verify.
As soon as I set the tank back up, the stuff started growing again. I those days, I left one light on just about 24x7 because I didn't make it downstairs everyday to turn the lights off. I cut back the lights, like I should have done, and put them on a timer. Poof the green slime left practically overnight.
With the addition of the 2wpg lighting, the green slime is back.
I ordered a scraper since it's growing all over the sides of the tank. However, I noticed that the growth appears to have slowed down or even stopped. Wondering if the plants are starting to take up the nutrients that the green slime needs.
I read about a trick that I started using a few days ago. One article suggested that you turn on the lights for about an hour in the morning to get algae motivated to grow and then turn off the light. Supposedly, the algae uses up a lot of energy to start photosynthesis and it's a shock to the system. Not sure what is causing the change to my green slime, but maybe it'll be gone in a few days.
